While the revised procedure may be a little slow getting started, it may
ultimately have a greater throughput than the current method.
A couple of comments: in paragraph 3, the voting could even start right after
the general meeting at which there was discussion. It probably should be made
clear that individuals can change their votes during the voting period, since
they might be moved by arguments that accompany other votes.
BTW, should votes be required to be open, i.e. sent to the entire
stds-754@xxxxxxxx mailing list? I would say yes.

Subject: 754R balloting procedure
Since the possibility of balloting on procedures as well as
was broached at the last general meeting, I've decided to try
is a study ballot for revising the web voting procedure.
It's inspired by our last general meeting's failure to
any of the issues that were nominally due to close balloting
on August 28,
with the result that they all had to be deferred for another month.
